Well known Newfoundland gardening expert, Ross Traverse.

Cover of Ross Traverse's first gardening book: 
Ask Ross Traverse About Gardening: Practical Advice for Gardeners in a Cool Climate

TORBAY, NL, September 18, 2006 – Ross Traverse launched his first book entitled Ask Ross Traverse About Gardening: Practical Advice for Gardeners in a Cool Climate. Gardening is one of the most popular hobbies in Newfoundland and Labrador. Our province has a very unique climate within North America and, recognizing the need for practical advice, Ross Traverse has written and published this book about gardening in cool climates.

“For forty years I have been answering questions about gardening in Newfoundland and Labrador. Now many of these questions and answers are presented in a reference book. You will also find consumer tips, landscape ideas, humourous illustrations, and anecdotes,” says Mr. Traverse.

Dr. Wilf Nicholls, director of Memorial University Botanical Garden, in his foreword to the book writes, “Ross’s advice comes from decades of experience working with growers and growing plants himself. The oft-used cliche of ‘those that can, do; and those that can’t, teach’ doesn’t apply to Ross for Mr. Traverse has done it all and knows of what he speaks.”

Ask Ross Traverse About Gardening (ISBN 0-9739609-0-6) is available from Traverse Gardens in Torbay. The book retails for $24.95.

To order a copy, please contact Traverse Gardens by phone (709) 437-5539 or e-mail
